For anyone remotely interested in a Garmin 305

Powerbar.com is offering a $75 rebate if you sign up for their online newsletter. It's a no-brainer if you ask me.

Old news to most around here, but thanks for posting it. www.geomangear.com has all of the details... I just got my notification that my rebate has been processed and the check is on the way.

By the way, if you are thinking about holding out for the 705 because of the navigation features only, I'd say do not bother. I preloaded 5 days worth of courses into my 305 and followed the breadcrumbs over some very rural roads last week - the Edge worked flawlessly and many times when the cue sheet was confusing or even incorrect the GPS pointed the way correctly. I love my toy!

I called up zappos.com, gave them the sku # on their website, told em it was cheaper at amazon.com. They checked and matched plus 10% of the price difference. Free overnight shipping too

Apparently, there was a temporary mistake on the Amazon site and you were the beneficiary of a fluke. I contacted both Zappos and Amazon to verify your price. Frankly, your purchase price is WAY (!) below cost so I thought I better check it out.

Amazon's best price today on the Edge 305 Bundle (HR+CAD, not refurbished, part #010-00447-30) is $311.99. Zappos will honor the price match plus 10% for a final price of $280.79. I talked to Zappos, took them to the Amazon site, showed them the options and that is the best they would do.

As always, we appreciate your support.
